A small scandal rocked the world of dance when Good Morning America's Lara Spencer poked fun at England’s six-year-old Prince George for practicing ballet. The comment, and its thoughtless delivery, shone a light on the casual harassment endured by danseurs—male ballet dancers—just for being athletic and doing cool high jumps. If you want to know more about this issue (or just see lean, muscled guys slowly pirouet), Portland Ballet presents this one-time screening of Danseur, a 2018 documentary containing interviews with over 20 danseurs, and a 30-minute panel discussion with director Scott Gormley and local ballet dancers Zachary Carroll, Peter Franc, and Theodore Skye Stouber.
